SynAudCon_MakingWirelessWork_2015SynAudCon’s “Making Wireless Work: Losing the Wires Without Losing Your Mind” is designed to answer the variety of questions that surround the use of wireless technology in today’s changing wireless landscape. The seminar will take place at the Tuscany Suites & Casino located in Las Vegas, December 3-4, 2015.

Every day audio professionals are challenged with fitting more channels into less spectrum, handling interference from lighting and video walls, evaluating new wireless microphone systems and components, increasing the reliability of existing wireless microphones systems and more. With the upcoming FCC reverse auction in March 2016, those challenges will be even greater.

L-Acoustics’ K2 Makes House-of-Worship Debut at McLean Bible Church

In Install News, Web Articles by tfwm

MBC_sanctuaryMcLean Bible Church, a non-denominational, evangelical Christian church with multiple locations in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, hosts an average of 13,000 worshippers each weekend at its campuses in Arlington, VA, Montgomery County, MD, Loudon, VA, Prince William, VA, and Tysons, its largest site, in Vienna, VA. In order to deliver maximum impact for both its music and message, MBC Tysons—from which Senior Pastor Lon Solomon’s sermons are broadcast live to the other locations—recently became the first-ever house of worship to install an L-Acoustics K2 loudspeaker system.

The system at MBC’s 2,400-seat Tysons sanctuary is remarkable for a number of unique aspects. Designed by L-Acoustics’ own specialists, led by Applications Engineer Chris “Sully” Sullivan, it consists of 10 K2 enclosures per side in a left-right stereo configuration with six SB28 subwoofers per side flown directly behind the main K2 hangs, reflecting L-Acoustics’ core philosophy that consistent directionality of a sound source is critical to a coherent sound experience. Buttressing the main system are eight ARCS II enclosures configured in four arrays of two enclosures each, installed as delay speakers, and 12XT and 8XT enclosures for the front fill.

Dallas’ First Baptist Church Gets A Double Portion Of DiGiCo

In Web Articles by tfwm

DiGiCo_First_Baptist_1The DiGiCo SD7 console installed at Dallas’ First Baptist Church in April 2013 now has a counterpart in monitor world; a second SD7 recently went into its new 3,000-seat worship center giving the prominent Southern Baptist house of worship a consistent audio workflow across all of its live sound hubs. Both SD7 consoles were specified by Idibri, the Dallas-based AV design and consultancy for the church, with integration done through the Dallas office of Clair Solutions.

The two consoles are linked through no less than five DiGiCo SD-Racks—three placed just off stage in a remote location, one underneath the monitor console, and one down in the broadcast mixing studio near video control—as well as a 16-channel Nano-Rack located in the orchestra pit and used to provide extra inputs if needed.

First Baptist Church’s initial SD7 console went in as part of an extensive $130 million renovation of its main downtown location, which was completed two years ago. The church, established in 1868 and now led by Pastor Robert Jeffress, also owns and operates its First Baptist Academy and the KCBI radio station. Jeffress is broadcast on various radio stations across the country and televised worldwide through Pathway to Victory, the church’s broadcast ministry. The Sunday sermons are recorded for this purpose.
